    “The Central Statistics Office is delighted to sponsor an award that will encourage young people to use open data. This award is for the most innovative use, or potential use, of CSO data. Be it in statistical analyses, statistical processes or statistical outputs, be they scientific or mathematical, a piece of research, a visualisation or a data map, the development of a device, a software application or the use of CSO data in any other innovative way. Whatever way students use our data, the CSO is excited to see your open data projects.” – CSO
